WIP- Clover finished

Another enjoyable embroidery finished.  Leaves made with Stem, Satin  and Straight stitches.  Flower stems (of course- 😉 )Stem stitch but 2 colours of thread used.  I left inserting the wired leaf until last, so it wouldn’t foul the work.

The roots were done with Needleweaving and the clover heads were made with Detached Chain and a straight stitch and outer leaves with Bullion stitches.

As I’ve already started the next flower I’ll take a photo and post shortly.

  1. Oh, this is just as beautiful as in the book. The leave, roots and flower all prove this is true 3D embroidery.

    • Thank you Queenie. My head will be swelling with your kind comment.

  2. This might be my favorite one yet. I love the leaves, especially. You jumped right back into these after your trip – no rest for the weary. LOL

  3. Thanks Susan. I always find embroidery to be relaxing, not wearying..unless there’s a time frame to complete it.

  4. Another fun one – thank you for telling us what stitches you used. I might just have to succumb and get myself the book as an early Christmas present.

    • I’m certain you’d like the book Mary Anne.
